Bananarama are back and want you to know that Love Comes

Here is Bananarama's new video for the new album's lead single 'Love Comes.' It is a quite listenable electro song that both suffers and benefits from the fact that it sounds like it is a Rachel Stevens cast-off from five years ago. The video is all 'cougars in the Vogue prop closet' and works quite well, but one can't help feeling like this 'comeback' isn't going to be much different for them than last time. ScopiSat is all about these ladies, but another top-20 also ran is probably in the cards. Sad. :(

Out Sept 6 on Fascination Records

Nelly Furtado sings things in Spanish and previews her new album

Here is a short video that showcases each of the tracks on Nelly Furtado's upcoming album. You may notice that the words to the songs are not in English. The words are, in fact, in Spanish. This does not detract from the fact that the songs are quite good, and some native Spanish speakers may feel the language choice actually enhances them. We will leave it to you to decide.

The album, 'Mi Plan,' is out Sept 15 on Universal
